More than likely this metal ball is the one that is used with the on/off switch.

    yes that metal ball went under the turn table wheel and it is part of the barrings that the turn table uses to sspin evenly and smooth , you might want to make sure more have not come out or that the clip that holds the turntable down is secure

Why is the right side of my Technics turntable dropping out and giving me a ground hum?

It sounds like a bad connection to the cartridge, perhaps even the cartridge itself.

Fried power on technics SL 1200MK2.

If you are lucky then just the fuse may have failed - usually F1 / 250mA / 20mm type.

If your unlucky the transformer may have fried - mail me for a price

I have sl-1200mk2, and the signal does not come in

The first thing to is try to eliminate the cartridge as a cause of the fault. You can do this by swapping the connections around on the cartridge. If you get the weakness still on the Red cable you know it is that. Solder joints do cause trouble, often the earth is the problem. Try resoldering the joints. Or replace the entire cable as there might be a break.
